Aeolus Incredible from Enschede won the 29th Veluweloop in record time, but their victory was only secured in the final lap of the race...
Bagging the top prize in the Veluweloop is a first for Aeolus. In 2006, the Aeolus Running Team, a group of athletes based at Twente University, won the first part of the Veluweloop, but ended up in tenth place. Aeolus came in third two years ago, clinched the second place last year, and now became the new champion.
Tartletos was the fastest of the eight student teams. A total of 88 teams made it to the finishing line. In the first-ever alumni race, the fastest alumnus was Jeroen Zeinstra, followed by Ate van der Burgt and Jan Kranenbarg.
